Hi friends. I have ten standard size chicks coming in April and hubby is expanding and building a new coop but I am worried. I ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT GET HIM TO BUILD A BIGGER COOP THAN A 4X8. I already have a large run and 10,000 sq. feet to free range but how many chickens will a 4x8 coop hold?? I'm concerned about space. I've read several answers online and want to know what you all think? I was so excited when he started the build i have been asking for a larger coop for four years. I don't want to sound ungreatful but when I learned of the size I must say I was disappointed and concerned. I tried to talk him into a bigger coop but he won't budge on size. now the walls are framed and I'm worried I might need to get rid of some of my brand new girls when they come because they won't all fit in the coop. what do you think? will ten chickens fit in a 4x8 coop?? or should I plan on giving some of my new girls away (heart breaking)??
